Harare City Council said it will soon publish a list of churches that owe it millions in unpaid rates and lease fees amounting to more than $10 million.
Speaking to Daily News on Sunday, council corporate communications manager Michael Chideme said churches did not even attempt to clear their debts or make payment plans when the last list was published in 2017. Said Chideme:
Council will soon publish the names of church organisations whose unpaid rates and lease fees have accumulated over the past few years. The publication of the debtors list will help show which church organisations are using free land and not contributing towards service delivery.
